TIME TO “PACK IT IN”

TIME TO PACK IT IN…!

Chrysanthemums were ragged,

The cabbage turning slaw,

When I came back for my shift

There were none left at all…

Landscapers had pulled up

Every single plant,…

But for the trees and bushes

The flora left was scant!

Stop talking with your neighbor

And I’ll tell you the rest,

They worked the soil adding things

As the edge footprints attest…

Preparing for the winter

Is nowhere a sin,

You have to cut your losses—

It’s time to pack it in!!!!

Most gardeners would leave them

Overwintering in place,

But at corporate headquarters

Messy gardens lose face…

Things¬†neat and tidy–

The corporation creed,

So they clear out gardens that

Their P.R. work succeeds!
